DIY: Replacing Ventilation Fan
Maybe about a year ago, wife told me there is a burning smell of plastic at laundry room – and noticed the fan was on for some long period, and the burning smell went away when I turned off the fan. (and placed a tape on the switch not to turn on)
As this was the fan at first floor, getting access directly from the top was not an option, hence studied youtube videos for a long period and multiple times and finally attempted to replace it. This required lots of work – electricity wiring, hammering/screw nailing – as the fan was attached to different direction then intended, dry wall cutting as there was no exact size as old one in the market. Finally, found the fan’s plastic was broken causing the smell after inhaling lots of dust only after I tore down the existing fan. 🙂
After all – maybe saved about $150-$200 labor cost 🙂
오래전부터 가지고 있었던 To-Do list중 하나인 – 돌리면 플라스틱 태우는 냄새를 발산해 주시는 – 망가진 세탁실의 환풍기를 교체했다…(사실 세탁실에 환풍기가 그닥 꼭 필요하지는 않아서 미루고미루고 미루던 일…)
흐… 전기에, 벽에 흑.. 물론 youtube에선 쉽게 하는데 항상 그렇듯 내가 할려고 하면 – 특히 이렇게 오래된 설비는- 아무리 공부하고 미리 준비를 해놔도 결국은 실행 단계에서는 응용을 해야한다는게 스릴 넘치는 순간들….
덕분에 공임 대충 150-200불 아끼고 또 하나의 설비에 대해 배웠다.. -.-;
